There are few things more relaxing or synonymous with sophistication than reclining in an armchair by a roaring fire with a glass of fine whisky, revelling in the thoughts of the day after a hearty meal.
Whether it’s lone contemplation or a drink with friends and socialites, there’s no choice richer in heritage or elegance than Scottish single malt whisky brand, Longmorn. The brand dates back to the days of the Victorian era, and since the first drops of the amber nectar were distilled, the brand has embodied the concept of exquisite taste. It truly quenches the thirst of those hunting for unrivalled luxury.
Longmorn is the product of the imagination of master distiller John Duff, who, before finding his feet in the whisky industry, ran a hotel in Aberdeen, Scotland. The elegant taste of whisky first entered John’s life in the late 1860’s, when he managed Glendronach Distillery. The decision to enter the whisky industry couldn’t have come at a better time, as in the 1860’s, there had been what many described as “a Scotch whisky boom.”
In 1876, John founded Glenlossie distillery, accompanied by two business partners, which he managed for a decade. In the years that followed, John would travel far and wide, from South Africa to Kentucky, attempting to set up distilleries, in search of foreign flavours.
